Baptism is an “outward and visible sign of an inward and spiritual grace.” It is an external action that points to something within-hopefully, an experience of God. At times, the church offers services of baptism or baptismal renewal. At other times, individuals seek out a pastor for the baptism of their child. And at other times, individuals who are drawing nearer to God inquire about the possibility of their own baptisms. Baptism is about connecting the life-giving waters of God (John 4:14) with the presence of the gathered community and the faithful person.
Through Christian baptism, we are made a part of God’s covenant people. By the gift of water, we are incorporated into the body of Christ. For more information on baptisms, see these Frequently Asked Questions and Suggested Resources.
In our Traditional service, baptisms are generally on the second and fourth Sunday of the month, with the exception of special services in the year (such as Lesson and Carols, etc.).
